NIce but not enough games

The arena is mainly for bowling and that is only what you can do there. Do not have a great choice of games available. 3 table of pool which can be a good source of killing time.

Went after watching a film at the cinema opposite. Very friendly staff and clean. Prices are a bit expensive and the beer a bit weak, but drinkable.

The staff here are so friendly and helpful. We didn't eat but there is a full bar available for drinks which were a little pricey but not too bad. Cost of bowling was acceptable.

A good bowling alley, with fun games and entertainment, however some of the customers hanging around in the lounge area and not bowling were pretty dodgy. Didn't feel safe leaving my bag on the table.

I have always liked bowling had two games with my family, place was very nice and staff were friendly but the bowling lanes themselves were fine but the lane service was very slow and the woman got the order wrong twice and really expensive.

This is not a bad place but very expensive for both the bowling and the food. Kids love going here and the staff are friendly. If you park in the multi story make sure you get your parking ticket validated at the counter. You can park for free if you buy a bowling game.
